Quickly Implementing Remote Learning
Georgia is dedicating a significant portion of more than $400 million in federal COVID-19 relief funds toward facilitating remote learning in school districts across the state. The use of Lexia’s programs, which specialize in this area, allows the state to meet and maintain a consistent level of remote instruction across an ever-growing list of school districts.
HELPING MAINTAIN A SAFE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
With Georgia school districts considering a variety of remote learning options to ensure continuity of learning, the state is now seeking intentional curriculum planning that can be used if schools need to close again. Lexia’s literacy programs can be used across a variety of educational settings, providing a safe and responsible plan as districts reopen fully and assess student needs throughout the year.
KEEPING TEACHERS CONNECTED
Now more than ever, teachers need data-driven tools to help monitor student learning. Lexia’s proprietary Assessment Without Testing® provides periodic and actionable norm-referenced data in real time without the need to administer a test, supplementing traditional instruction by helping educators identify individual student needs.
CONTINUING TO MEET STATE LITERACY GOALS
The Get Georgia Reading initiative recognizes early literacy as a key component of long-term educational success. Lexia’s curriculum is aligned with the goals of Get Georgia Reading, allowing students to achieve reading proficiency and empowering school districts to meet the initiative’s early literacy goals.

Transforming Georgia Schools through Personalized Learning
Over the past three years, 14 schools from the Turnaround Eligible list across four Georgia districts have transformed their instructional practices through the Personalized Learning (PL) grant. The grant is part of the state’s strategy to increase student achievement and engagement through the design and implementation of personalized learning. Participating schools in the Muscogee, Dougherty, Bibb and Savannah-Chatham districts have received resources to address the needs of each student.
